TBWA\Manchester has stated that its client’s private information is not as risk following a burglary at its offices on Wednesday night, which saw the theft of its iMac computers.

The creative agency confirmed that the break in took place and that ‘a number of pieces of equipment’ were taken, understood to be the agency's iMacs.

Despite the theft, the agency has stated that there is no possibility that its client’s sensitive information was at risk.

“Our clients have been incredibly supportive of the break in today. In terms of the information that is held on the Macs, we only keep personal and public reference material on them which would be available in the public domain, so there is no risk of any sensitive material being taken out of the building,” said a spokesperson for the agency.

“That is all kept on secure servers and not on the machines, so there is no risk whatsoever to client’s information and we obviously have very stringent security protocols in place, which in the circumstances mean that our client’s work is protected,” they added.
